The Vision & Values Project is a months-long public process to identify Falmouth residents’ shared ‘vision and values’ and to formulate a Town Vision Statement. The Vision that emerges from the visioning process will guide the Town’s upcoming comprehensive planning process.
The Falmouth Vision & Values project explored the future of Falmouth with residents using many different outreach methods.
Project engagement included two surveys, multiple discussion boards, Future Summits, Focus Groups, and a Think-Tank. Survey results are posted to the portal on the Data Visualization Tab.
According to the 2003 Community Visioning Handbook by the former Maine State Planning Office, a community vision is a “mental picture of what residents want their community to look and feel like in 20 years.” A Vision Statement reflects the broadly shared aspirations of residents for their community. It describes the desired future community character. The purpose of a vision statement is “to capture a picture of the community’s future that any resident quickly can grasp and appreciate.”
